Miss McDowell can act strongly
The story told by this picture is weak both in the sentimentality of its ethics and in the lack of convincing humanity in its action. There are two or three vigorously acted scenes in it, due mostly to the work of Claire McDowell, the lady detective. A poor chemist is about to shoot himself because he lacks the money to go on with his investigations, so his uncle, a butler, steals from his employers to finance him, "for science, not for personal gain," yet the youth is now so prosperous that the detective who sees him on the street is made suspicious. That shows the quality of it all. It permits us to point out that Miss McDowell can act strongly even when the situation is ridiculous, which is a pretty good comment on her powers. - The Moving Picture World, December 6, 1913
